Home Staging Success in Burlington – 3 Offers in 24 Hours

Home Staging Success

It was one of those projects that makes you proud to be a Home Stager.

The home was well-kept, well-lived in and well-loved. Like all of us, the homeowners decorated their home to suit their unique style and they had lived there happily for over a dozen years. The home was somewhat modest, certainly not a million dollar showcase home.

When the decision was made to sell and move on, they understood that they, as individuals, had to remove their personality from the home and enhance it’s best features by staging it for potential buyers to appreciate. The key to successful staging is in transforming a customized living space into an environment that will appeal to the majority of home buyers – removing the individual and injecting the ‘wow’ factor. You want buyers to walk through your door and immediately think ‘wow, I can see my family loving this home’.

We worked with the homeowners to remove and store excess furniture. I always like to use as much of the homeowner’s furniture to be as cost efficient as possible. But to ramp up the ‘wow’ factor I brought in items from my inventory of premium decor accessories.

The staging was completed for this Burlington home and an Open House scheduled for Sunday. Three of the potential buyers walking through the Open House made an offer the next morning. Not only did the homeowners receive multiple offers within 24 hours of the Open House, the offer they accepted was above their initial list price.

So the benefits about Home Staging are true:

  • Professionally staged homes do sell faster than non-staged homes.
  • Buyers can easily visualize the potential of a home when it is professionally staged home.
  • The cost of Home Staging adds exponential value to your home – the average return on Home Staging dollars is 400%.
  • The cost of Home Staging is far less than the cost of your first price reduction.
